FREERIDE WORLD TOUR - 2009

DUCROZ & ENDERUD FREERIDE WORLD CHAMPIONS!

BARKERED 2nd IN OVERALL STANDINGS!

The

Freeride World Tour 2009 came to an end with an amazing fourth stage

and grand finale: the Nissan Xtreme - Verbier. Frenchman Aurélien

Ducroz, a Dynastar skier, became the 2009 Freeride World Champion with

a incredible victory on the Bec des Rosses.

Reine

Barkered, the Swedish Dynastar skier who won in Squaw Valley, took

2nd in the Verbier Xtreme and as well as 2nd place in the overall

Freeride World Tour.

In the women's competition, Norwegian Dynastar skier, Ane Enderud, dominated and became the Freeride World Champion.

And

last but not least,  Raphi Gillioz, a Swiss Dynastar skier from

Verbier, took 3rd at the Verbier Xtreme --  just behind Reine and

Aurélien.

Dynastar

athletes, on Legend skis filled the podium in Verbier and won 2 World

Champions titles!  Congratulations to our athletes and thank you for

your commitment, your passion, performance and true talent.                                                                                             

AURELIEN DUCROZ:

2009 FREERIDE WORLD CHAMPION & WINS VERBIER XTREME!

          

Aurélien

Ducroz lead the overall standings before the stage in Verbier, brought

honor to his "Golden Bib" with a historic run. The windblown Bec des

Rosses face, with 55° slopes, was tougher than usual.  Aurélien, on his

Legend Pro Rider skis chose a really challenging line. 

After

his podiums at the Nissan Russian Adventure (2nd) and the Nissan Tram

Face in Squaw Valley (3rd), Ducroz was victorious in Verbier. Like his

winning run in 2006, he revealed his mastery and ease on such steep

slopes. Very emotional at the awards ceremony, Aurelien claimed his

spot as the discipline leader. After 3-years, he finally clinched the

World Champion Title that he truly deserves.

  REINE BARKERED:

2nd IN VERBIER XTREME & WORLD FREERIDE TOUR OVERALL STANDINGS!

  

In

the men's competition, Reine Barkered (SWE) surprised us all this

season with his win in Squaw Valley. He concluded the competition with

a run packed with lots of quick jumps. The win in Squaw plus his 2nd in

Verbier put him in second place in overall standings of the 2009

Freeride World Tour -- just ahead of his compatriot Sverre Liliequist,

who won in Sochi.

ANE ENDERUD:

WINNER VERBIER XTREME & FREERIDE WORLD CHAMPION!

           

Encouraged

by her entire family who came all the way from Norway, Ane Enderud,

chose a creative line with impressive jumps. Thanks to her victory in

Verbier, she took her first Freeride World Champion title just ahead of

Marja Persson (SWE) and Jess McMillan (USA), who were all on the podium

of the Nissan Xtreme - Verbier.

RAPHI GILLIOZ, 3rd IN VERBIER XTREME!

          

Raphi

Gillioz (SUI), Verbier mountain guide and head of the ski patrol in the

Mont Fort area mesmerized the huge crowd that gathered at the Col de

Gentianes to admire the 14th edition of this legendary competition. By

choosing the central line, of which he alone knew the secrets, he

climbed to the third step of the podium.

Dynastar

filled the podium!   Great results and exciting for the Mont Blanc

brand that is a pioneer in freeride ski development; a brand fully

commited to the freeride discipline and a reference in the ski industry

with the Legend series.
